Our partial hospitalization program is a structured mental health treatment designed for kids. Children ages 12-18 who are struggling with emotional and behavioral concerns can participate in the intensive outpatient program during weekdays and return home to their families on evenings and weekends. The goal is to improve mental health symptoms and teach skills necessary for improved function at home and school.
The integrated behavioral health program and the specialized profressionals at Children’s Minnesota are dedicated to improving kids’ emotional well-being and access to care. Our specialists are experts at helping children manage mental health issues.
Recognizing early signs of mental health problems and helping parents know when a behavioral or emotional issue needs professional help are crucial for healthy development and well-being of children and adolescents.

For teens with a chronic illness or disability, adolescence is a combination of a special developmental period and a difficult set of challenges. Adolescence is a unique developmental time characterized by emerging independence, rapid cognitive and physical growth, and the development of an identity. Peer relationships develop a special significance during adolescence. Chronic illness and disability impose physical limitations, often require repeat medical visits, and can involve complex medical treatments.
